This is my favorite picture.
It’s not in focus.
It doesn’t have clean lines
It uses no fundamentals of visual composition
but it is still one of the most beautiful images I have ever seen,
because you are in it.
Your presence, joy and spirit are so vivid,
just like that day.
We walked, reminisced and laughed.
You carried him in the back, smiling and whispering in his ear as you pointed out flowers.
I wish I knew what incredible stories and secrets and gifts shared.
I wish we could have just one more day.
This picture will have to do.
A single image with the power to take me back to that day in Madison,
to remind me of what you mean and who you are and why.
Do you have a picture that does that?
A frozen moment that brilliantly (re)surfaces
all the colors and scents and sounds and emotions of the day?
Make some no15e.
